IT Security is always look for skilled candidates.

Falgun : As said, a candidate should be skilled, focused and dedicated towards the goal which makes him successful in any industry while same goes for Cyber security. Those who want to jump into the industry should more plan and research where exactly they are good at. My students range from age 15 to 70 from preschool students to retired from schools, corporates and governments. Few has become VP of the companies, few are working in very well-known Security companies and few are freelancer researchers earning millions seating at home. A best security person is the one who is pace learner, dedicated and focused.
